Karl Lagerfeld: Top Photographer, Designer, etc.

Karl Lagerfeld (born September 10, 1933 in Hamburg) is a fashion designer, artist and photographer based in Paris. Here we have another super talent performing at his best at the age of 78!!!! All his pictures that I am blogging today are from 2011/2012 campaigns. You can be a great photographer as long as you live, I hope. Think about Irving Penn, George Hurell, Richard Avedon, etc.

"Karl Lagerfeld started designing in the 1950s but it is only much later that he tried his hand at photography. Legend has it that, dissatisfied with submissions from agencies, Lagerfeld was challenged to shoot the 1987 press release by Eric Pfrunder, Chanel’s image director. The designer of Chanel’s fashion collections has since then doubled as the man behind the lens for Chanel ads and corporate images. Lagerfeld admits that photography plays a major role in his life; .....“I cannot see life without the vision of a photographer anymore. I see the world and fashion through lens.”  Ritournelle

Couture Candice – Karl Lagerfeld captures Candice Swanepoel in stunning fall 2011 haute couture garments for the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar US. Styled by Andrew Richardson, Candice is diva glam in the designs of Chanel, Givenchy and Atelier Versace haute couture. Hair by Sam McKnight and makeup by Val Garland complete the sumptuous black and white image.

Statuesque Resort – The Fendi resort 2012 campaign taps Natasha Poly for ultra-bright images starring the Russian beauty with classic statues and mid-length skirts. Photographed by Karl Lagerfeld, Natasha sports a messy up-do and chunky heels with a casual elegance.

Princess Vanessa – Actress Vanessa Paradis teams up with Karl Lagerfeld for the July 2011 issue of Tatler Russia. The French beauty wanders around Versailles Palace in the delicate and elegant designs of Chanel, bringing an echo of Marie Antoinette style back to the court.

Fendi Fall 2011 Campaign ~ Muse Like – Another season, another Fendi campaign starring Anja Rubik lensed by Karl Lagerfeld. For autumn, Anja goes brunette as she plays a muse for male model Brad Kroenig. The collections mishmash of furs, tweed and knits go on display in a studio setting where Anja is as elegant as ever in languid poses.

Hope you have enjoyed looking at some of Karl Lagerfeld's recent work. Here are some links to some more info and images:
